Physiology News

Physiology News is The Physiological Society’s quarterly magazine. As well as keeping Members up to date with the latest Society activities, it provides news and views on current physiological issues and other topics of interest. The aim is to increase the visibility of underrepresented perspectives as well as give readers an insight into experiences in science different from their own.
